Sawgrass Village


ELM set a transformative vision for Sawgrass Village as the “Heart of Ponte Vedra Beach,” leading the project’s planning and design to transform the tired 1980s shopping center into the retail, restaurant, and civic centerpiece of the community.

The center’s new design reintroduced Sawgrass Village as an energetic, pedestrian-rich commercial environment, with world-class retail and restaurant destinations to serve the residents and visitors to the affluent and desirable Ponte Vedra Beach region.

Shopping has evolved into a form of entertainment, and the old facility wasn’t a place that attracted people – where they wanted to spend their time. The quality of Sawgrass Village has improved significantly just by what’s been done in Phase I, and the framework is now in place to create a world-class retail and restaurant destination in Phase II.
